Aliases

Mystery Train Departs,well, for members.

Yee-haw! Mystery Train Island has finally arrived in Poptropica after a lengthy wait. Paid members can access the newest Poptropica adventure right now. There was a cool moment when the counter hit zero and a train rolled across the screen. Woo-hoo! When you arrive in the game, you‚Äôll be in Washington D.C. next to a train about to depart for Chicago and the World‚Äôs Fair. A number of Poptropica citizens are there trying to get on board to attend and see major attractions like the Ferris Wheel. Your first set of tasks will be to find a ticket to get on board and help many others as well‚Äďincluding a few famous travelers like Thomas Edison.

Here’s part one of the video walkthrough.

Check out the Mystery Train Island Cheats page to watch parts 2 through 4 of the walkthrough and to get the step-by-step written guide (coming soon!)

Sneak Peek for Non-Members

Not a paid member? Don’t worry. You can still get a sneak peek at Mystery Train Island. Non-members can travel to the island by balloon and walk around the Main Street area, where you’ll see some of the Poptropica citizens and the train at the station. You can even help Thomas Edison and board the train, but you won’t be able to complete the full quest. The island will open up completely to non-members in October.

Poptropica Mystery Train Island Sneak Peek

Click  for the full video and written walkthrough.
And this is the written one (Demo)

Arrival on Mystery Train Island

Mystery Train Ramp
  • When you arrive, jump down and run to the left until you see a man pushing his luggage. This is Thomas Edison, the famous inventor. He needs your help getting his luggage loaded onto the train.
  • Talk to him and then a puzzle mini-game will appear. Re-arrange the suitcases so that they line up left to right from smallest to largest. Then click on the plank of wood to create a ramp. You will push the luggage up into the cargo car of the train. So much work!
  • Thomas Edison will give you a train ticket to ride the John Bull from Washington, D.C. to Chicago.
  • Run over to the right until you get to the train door next to the Chicago World‚Äôs Fair poster. The cursor will say Ride Train. Hop on board!

On Board the Train

Stolen Device in Mystery Train Island
  • Your first task is to talk to all the famous passengers on the train. The first is Ferris, the inventor of the Ferris wheel. He‚Äôs upset and will give you a copy of a telegram he received that says the wheel needs more power to work.
  • Next run left and talk to Nikokla Tesla, who is standing outside of his cabin door.
  • Then go inside Susan B. Anthony‚Äôs cabin and speak with her. She‚Äôll give you a Women‚Äôs Suffrage Pamphlet.
  • Go back outside and run to the left to talk with Gustav Eiffel. Then continue left until you come to a door marked with the name, Erik Weisz. Go inside and talk to the man there.
  • Head back out and run to the left through several train cars until you reach a guy wearing a hat and a pencil in his ear. He‚Äôs a reporter from the New York Times. Talk to him and he‚Äôll complain that the fair is second-rate because it‚Äôs in Chicago.
  • Now go into Mark Twain‚Äôs cabin and speak with him.
  • Leave Twain‚Äôs cabin and go to the left. You‚Äôll pick up a pencil that‚Äôs lying on a table as you run past.
  • Skip past Thomas Edison‚Äôs cabin and go into Mlle. Moreau‚Äôs room. Speak with her to hear her talk about how much better the World‚Äôs Fair in Paris was. She‚Äôll give you a copy of her newspaper,¬†Le Monde.
  • Now you‚Äôve met with everyone you need to. Go into Thomas Edison‚Äôs cabin and talk to him.
  • He‚Äôll tell you about his latest invention, a device which captures moving pictures. He‚Äôll suggest that you try it out and once it starts working, he‚Äôll leave to get the reporter from the¬†New York Times.
  • A cut-scene will appear showing the train heading into a tunnel.
  • The room will go dark and when the lights come back on, the projector is missing! Thomas Edison and the reporter arrive and want to know what happened.
  • Now you have to clear your name and find the person who stole the projector.
Some hints:
Thief is the ** ***** ********. (It’s a female.)
Erik Weisz is ***** ******* (it’s a male.)
Answers will be revealed on October 7, 2011.

Poptropica Tips and Tricks: D.C. Diner

Things sure get hectic in the D.C. Diner. Here are a few tips to keep your restaurant in ship-shape.Keep moving.

Don’t just stand there waiting for your cook to fill an order. Head back to the table and see if another customer has a new order. Every second you’re standing still is a second wasted.

Stand in the right spot.

You can fill up drinks and bus dishes withough having to stand next to the soda fountains or the dish bin. But you do need to stand right in front of the chef in order to place a dinner order. Try filling up drinks from across the screen, or bussing dishes while you place multiple orders with the cook.

Choose your upgrades carefully.

The hostess is a big help, but you probably don’t need her in the earlier stages, when only a few customers at a time can fit at the table. But fast drinks — that’ll shave seconds off your time from the start.

Take calculated risks.

Every customer will always order a drink first. Then they will order either the chicken or the burger. Knowing this, you can take some calculated risks. Keep an extra soda and root beer on your tray. Get the chef cooking a burger and a chicken¬†before¬†anybody has ordered their dinner. You might end up needing to dump something in the trash, but when these risks pay off, you’ll save lots of time.

Hopefully some of these tips will help. What tricks have you found to keep the D.C. Diner running smoothly?

Climb aboard the Mystery Twain

Interrogations can get pretty rough when you’re trying to solve a crime on the Mystery Train.Even Mark Twain can’t handle the third degree.

Keep an eye out right here for more info about Mystery Train Island, coming very soon! ¬†(“Twain” Is not an error. The man in the picture is Mark Twain.)
